Today the Kickstarter campaign for Alchitry, a new series of boards, went live!
There are four new boards! The Alchitry Au features an Artix 7 FPGA which is supported by Vivado! No more dealing with the antiquated ISE!
The Alchitry Cu features a Lattice iCE40 HX8K FPGA which is supported by the open source project, Project IceStorm. The Mojo IDE is going to be turned into Alchitry Labs, which will be open source. This means that you will be able to develop for the Alchitry Cu using only open source tools!
The Alchitry Breakout element (expansion board) can be used to easily connect to any of the signals on the headers.
Finally, the Alchitry IO element is perfect for the beginner to follow along with a handful of tutorials.
